Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut is suing Eugene Melnyk for over $900,000 in gambling debts and interest payments.  

The Ottawa Senators owner had issued a series of payment drafts to the casino for varying amounts. The first one in March 2017, and another 4 payments in March 2019 – worth $200,000 each, and all issued within one hour of each other.

The Toronto Bank reviewed these drafts and failed to honor the payments due to insufficient funds. Now the tribal-owned casino is pushing for a repayment of $900,000 on top of $15,000 in damages, compensation and other costs.

Though Melnyk has an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion plastered above his head, it’s hardly clear as to why the owner of one of the most prestigious NHL teams in the world can’t afford to pay back his losses. If the case goes to court, we imagine the real reasons will inevitably surface.
